Neetu Chandra will skip entering the 'Bigg Boss' house, as she has just landed herself a huge film down South.
Director Ameer Sultan, who has given the Tamil film industry three award-winning jubilee hits in a row, has signed the Bollywood actress in the lead for his next ambitious venture 'Aadhi Bhagavan' opposite Kollywood superstar Jayam Ravi.
"Though the 'Bigg Boss' offer was lucrative and tempting, Neetu won't be able to participate as she has to leave for Ameer Sultan's shoot in Pattaya (Thailand) this week," informed her publicist.
Ever since she began discussions for the Southern film last month, Neetu has been learning Tamil. Every day, a tutor has been giving her two hours of lessons, while she learns new words, how to construct sentences and improvise diction. Impressed with Neetu's talent and dedication for bagging the role, the Southern director signed her last week.
